Here is something for you: a new web browser. Now, before you stop reading about yet another new web browser, please note: this is not a regular one.
So what is Lunascape then?
It’s the world’s first triple engine web browser. Yes, it’s a hybrid. Here is a simple formula:
Trident* (Internet Explorer) + Gecko* (Firefox) + WebKit* (Safari and Chrome) = Lunascape
* – rendering engine
Here are some of the highlights:
100/100 in Acid 3 test
Add-ons (IE and Firefox compatible)
Crash Protection Functionality
RSS News and Blog Info
… and much more
And the good news: Alpha 4 was released not so long time ago.
Main New Features in Lunascape5 Genesis Alpha 4
- The WebKit engine of Lunascape has been improved with the following enhancements.
- Scored perfect 100/100 at the Acid 3 test (with the WebKit engine)
- Fixed issues at SSL pages including iGoogle
- Enhanced font rendering to show characters in the appropriate size for web browsing
- Fixed crashing errors that occurred on certain conditions
Well, it’s an Alpha 4 release, so you should expect some bugs.
Windows XP/Vista only.
Plugin Center has no data yet
After playing with it for a while, my excitement faded away. Interface reminds me of Internet Explorer and somehow browsing feels bit sluggish.
Thanks to Charith De Silva for pointing this out.
